dso & I scuba diving the Carribean Nov 2006
Brad and I at the Grand Canyon 10/2009
It is all about the journey- taking time to smell the flowers, see the bunnies, hear the birds....!!
Life holds many unknowns...It is my prayer that when life's storms come my way...that I may learn to DANCE IN THE RAIN!!!
I want to challenge myself to live in the moment...we can't speak for tomorrow, but at least we have TODAY!
The things I like to do to manage stress is...
biking the trails, riding my stairstepper to 80's , exercise videos, playing with my American Eskimo & Scottish Terrier, quiet evenings watching movies with my dso, Saturday lunhes with my mom at the Tea Room, quilting, hot relaxation baths in my jetted tub with guided imagery by BelleRuth Napersteck, and inspirational devotionals that keep me inspired with hope. God made me. That makes me special. I have to remember that.
Everyday is a special part of the journey...

Hi! I live in Springfield, Missouri and have since 1980. I came from Indiana to go to college and liked it so well that I moved here. All of my immediate family trickled down here over the years. Great to have family support nearby.
I have a loving, significant other, still here after 23 years. He is my strength and inspiration, living life to the fullest each day. He's my hero.
I want to live healthy for myself and also to enhance my quality of life and health with him.
I have a Scottish Terrier, Fergie, and an American Eskimo, Angel.
I started a quilting club with my oldest best friends to make quilts for sick children. What a blessing it has been!
Quilt Club name: Sister's of Jabez.
I have worked as a Health Care Administrator for the past 15 years, currently in Hospice.
